"The next few years will be a very exciting time in our field."


Join us!


In the second year of your Master’s or third year of your Bachelor’s, you can apply for a project with one of QuTech’s research groups. With a project at QuTech Academy you will contribute to solving some of the most challenging problems in the revolutionary field of quantum computing and quantum communication.

QuTech welcomes students who are driven to work on problems at the very frontiers of quantum technologies. QuTech works hard to realise a quantum computer and quantum internet, and the most outstanding students will be given the chance to start a BSc or a MSc Project joining these efforts. As an example, students have helped perform the first loophole free Bell test.

QuTech Academy projects are available year round for a selection of motivated students from the fields of Applied Physics, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Applied Mathematics and Computer Science within QuTech Academy. To join a project, QuTech Academy students apply directly to QuTech’s research groups.

All of QuTech’s roadmaps have efforts in quantum software and theory, experiment and hardware, materials and computer engineering. Projects in quantum software and theory allow you to work on the design and analysis of quantum technologies. Such projects range from the design of new quantum protocols and algorithms and the theoretical analysis of quantum error correction schemes, quantum communication methods all the way to the theoretical design aspects of quantum hardware. Projects in experiment allow you to work directly in the experimental labs building quantum hardware. Exciting projects are available on a range of different platforms such as superconducting qubits and NV centers in diamond. Projects in quantum computer engineering allow you to work on the design and implementation of the classical control electronics and system architecture. These include design, fabrication and test of cryogenic integrated circuits for the control and read-out of qubits and quantum programming languages, compilers, and microarchitecture. Finally, projects are available in QuTech’s material efforts, where you can contribute directly to the development of new materials used in quantum chips.
